women missionaries

Her is a little of a post I just read about women on the mission field written by the Gospel Coalition, worth the read I think.

Complementarity should mean brothers take a lead role in making sure the women of our churches are fully prepared to be on mission. It should mean the male leaders of the church cast a special eye toward the unique needs of our sisters and take steps with the older women of the church to serve those needs with the hopes of advancing the gospel through missions. Complementarity should mean calling our sisters to come with us in the joyful, soul-saving, life-sacrificing, reward-winning purpose of reaching every nation. The challenge for more men to be at the fore is correct. But it should not diminish the role of women in the Great Commission in the process.
